new jersey in surveying the damage. that is where government works, fema, a program governor romney called for eliminating during the republican debate -- guest: not all, absolutely false. -- governor romney said that -- he talked about not funding in -- guest: governor romney said that, talk about not funding it. only government has the opportunity to provide those services certainly in an emergency like this. fema has to respond immediately. you saw the first responders -- police, fire, the municipal services that have to respond so quickly and so well. our hearts and thoughts go out to those affected communities and the president is responding quickly. he will get back on to the campaign trail on saturday in the commonwealth. let's go back to a lot of what barbour had to say in her presentation. went for barack obama was because they were responding to the bush presidency. during the bush presidency he took eight surplus from a year 2000 with -- took a surplus from the year 2000 and turned it into deficit by imposing the bush tax including millionaires. what governor romney is pr
restore power as quickly as possible. and before the storm came, fema pre-staged emergency response teams and deployed food, water and generators of and down the corcoast. by midweek, the department of defense was ready to fly in cargo planes but would be loaded with equipment to help local power companies get up and running faster. the recovery will still be a long, hard road for many families. it is a long road ahead. if you have been directly impacted by this storm and need temporary assistance getting back on your feet, you can call 1-800-621-fema, or apply at disasterassistance.gov. if you know folks who are still without power, and please let them know. if you do not live in an affected area, contact the red cross to find out how you can help. when the storm was darkest, the heroism of our fellow citizens shone brightest. nurses and doctors at nyu hospital brought newborn's downstairs. firefighters rescued people from apartment buildings. coast guard crews save a sinking ships pins in stormy seas -- save a sinking ship in stormy seas. that is who we are. we are americans. when times
is flexing the muscle of incumbency. he spent sunday afternoon at fema headquarters in washington. >> this is a serious and big storm. and my first message is to all the people across the eastern seaboard, mid-atlantic going north that you need to take this very seriously. >> governor romney canceled his weekend events in virginia. instead he spent sunday with running mate, paul ryan, on a bus tour through ohio. >> i know that right now some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm about to hit the coast. and our thoughts and prayers are with the people who will find themselves in harm's way. >> even before today's changes, the storm had already altered the campaign travel calendar, if you will. vice president biden cut short a new hampshire campaign swing. and instead diverted to ohio. >> the last thing the president and i want to do is let this campaign get in the way of anything. the most important thing is people's safety and people's health and property being saved here. >> the tuesday schedule is also in jeopardy. romney canceled a stop in new hampshire. the
, fema resources to the state. the storm killed at least 18 people, two of whom from long island. peter king who represents parts of long island. also chairman of the homeland security committee. congressman king, i want to start with what you can tell me about the damage on long island. >> actually, this is by far the worst storm we've had at least since 1938. it's just in my district alone, long beach is basically entirely cut off, they have no sewage, they have no power, they have no water. there's going to be a mass evacuation of long beach. and there were are number of fires, seven fires i'm aware where the houses burned to the ground, fire department couldn't get to them. a man's house blew up last night. thank god his neighbor next door, the entire house blew up. the water's been contaminated in places. freeport, there's probably 90% of the people without power in the -- on long island. so this is, again, by far the worst. we have entire streets under water, 5, 6 feet of water. it's 5 feet of water everywhere. i can go community by community, what it turned out to be is that the
jersey before the storm even hit. they were able to get here quick. national guard was here, fema was here. they were all working with local authorities and able to do it smoothly. they stopped search and rescue efforts for tonight. they have gotten all of the elderly and handicap out of the area. they will do it if there are emergency situations. they are not sure how many people are left in the the houses. we spoke to some people who said they were going to stay regardless. they didn't feel like it was much of a threat. the high tide though comes in at midnight tonight and they are concerned about getting another four feet of water. it's receded a lot. we can show you what it looks like here. you can hear the sounds of the activity here and the generators and the sirens every once in awhile. we have a hard time conveying what it smells like. there's a lot of gasoline, a lot of sewage. you don't want to imagine what's in all this water right now. >> everybody needs to take that high tide seriously as we know that's one of the things leaders are saying is to think this is necessar
, with fema and also with the president directly and his staff and they have assured us that the full weight of the government in terms of their resources, is at our beckoning and certainly once we have had an opportunity to do a full assessment with respect to our needs, we will be calling the federal government and asking for those resources. >> had you quite a dustup with the governor of your state, chris christie, who basically accused you of ignoring state-issued evacuation orders, telling people they could shelter in place as a last resort. what do you make of that? earlier, you said governor christie should call you and be man enough to own up to what you said is the mischaracterizations of what you advised residents. have you heard anything from him? >> i have not. i expect some point tomorrow our paths will cross. listen, what's important is to make sure all of us, the governor, the mayor and every elected official makes sure that we keep what's really important first and foremost and that's the safety of the constituents that we serve. anything personal between the governor and i,
with governor chris christie and representatives of fema and of course, as we said earlier, it is going to take a long time to get this back to where it should be. the damage is just absolutely remarkable looking at the jersey shore. all the way north down here toward the south. >> jennifer: so when are the residents going to be able to return to the area? >> reporter: well, that's obviously going to differ from community to community. and just how bad the damage is. we know that tonight high tide was another concern so authorities were asking folks not to come back to their homes just yet. there was also rain today and so while conditions certainly were a huge improvement over yesterday, they're telling folks that you know, they'll be told community by community when they can come back. >> jennifer: all right. thank you so much. i really appreciate it. abc correspondent t.j. winnick reporting from new jersey's cape may. all right. we're going to check in again with t.j. at the top of the next hour. and across the easte
government is here, we're doing what we need to do, coordinating with fema and i thank you mr. fugate for being here and helping our operation even better and we will move on from here. what i said yesterday i really mean. there has got to be sorrow and you see that and the president's seen that today, in the eyes and the faces of a lot of the folks he's met and that sorrow is appropriate. we've suffered some loss. luckily we haven't suffered that much loss of life and we thank god for that but we have suffered losses and this is the worst storm that i've seen in my lifetime in this state, but we cannot permit that sorrow to replace the resilience i know all new jerseyians have so we will get up and we'll get this thing rebuilt and we'll put things back together, because that's what this state is all about and always has been all about, and so for all of you who are here and i met a bunch of you today at brigantine who d disregarded my admonition to get the hell out of here. you are forgiven this time but not for much longer. we have to make sure when all of you see all this destructi
,000. and at the time that covered the whole cost of the house. >> so fema, was it fema money. >> it was fema money. i said to my. >> did you cash the check? >> yeah. >> do you feel bad about that. >> sure. i won't do it again. >> should do you 250 back to the government? >> i give more than that to charity. i'm not going to give it to the government it will waste it. >> that's true. that's my beef, too. so, you say that if you are in any kind of, like malibu, california, maybe you are up on the hill but that's a fire zone. so, if you are in any kind of zone, that may be risky, the government should say hey, you are on your own and if you can find an insurer who is going to do that for exorbitant price if you can't that's tough. >> exactly. private insurer are experts in figuring out what's a risk. that's information that the government obliterates by saying we don't want anyone to lose. we will cover you. >> bill: they cover you at a high rate. they are not giving you bonus on this. if you have to buy insurance beachfront government. >> you are not paying the real cost. otherwise, the flood insurance
, it allows the people to authorize people to move into hotels or whatever is necessary. >> how is fema doing? >> that's one of the complaints, it's been the slow responsover all. tread cross just got here yesterday. i was working on getting them here for three days. fema just got here yesterday, but they really won't be on the ground until today. >> they've been at the shelters, though, as well. >> they just started yesterday. a few representatives with some basic information. but they will be on the ground today. >> okay. so we're having a meeting with them later today to lay out going door to door. >> and the mayor, how is he doing? we have the marathon coming up. you were fairly critical of that yesterday in your comments. what's your thoughts? >> listen, overall, i understand and i really do respect. the mayor has a tremendously difficult job and overall -- and he's done a pretty good job handling this. i do, though, i really disagree with the call for the marathon. i think it's wrong. and a big part of it is a couple reasons. first and foremost, just yesterday we're pulling bodies out o
american red cross on the ground, we have fema on the ground, we have tremendous amount of volunteers in the community and donations from around this community, people going to various churches and we have so many distribution points for food, water, clothing. but those first two days, i was walking out here distributing food, water, with one of our local churches, crossroads church, and you know, the bowling alley collected a bunch of stuff and we were the only ones out here. i'm so happy that now -- >> what should -- i have people coming up to me in manhattan saying i want to help the people on staten island, i don't know where to go or how to do it, what they need. what would you recommend? >> well, i'll say tomorrow at 9:00, we're meeting right here to do cleanup. i'm asking people if they want to come down, bring their own shovels, brooms, bags, garbage bags and gloves, we could certainly use all the help that we can get. we are going to be cleaning up the new york beach area and then the midland beach, some of the midland beach area, and we will try to see if we can continue tha
would,. state government is here. we're doing what we need to do. we're coordinating with fema. i want to thank administrator fugate for being here and helping our operation even better and we'll move on from here. what i said yesterday i really mean. there has got to be sorrow. and you see that in, president has seen that today in the eyes and faces of a lot of folks he met. and that sorrow is appropriate. we suffered some loss. luckily we haven't suffered that much loss of life and we thank god for that. we have suffered losses. this is the worst time i've seen in my lifetime in this state but we can not permit that sorrow to reprays the -- replace resilience i know all new jerseyians have. we'll get up and get this thing built and get it back together because that is what this state is about and always been about. for all who are here, i met a bunch of you here at brigantine who disregarded my admonition to get the hell out of here. you are forgiven this time but not for much longer. when all of you look around and see all this destruction that's fine. you know what? all that stuff
better than anybody about fema and about the red cross. is he going to tell us about that at the bottom of the hour. in the meantime three days before we do the final voting, election day just three days away, the candidates are out in the battleground states. we're going to talk about that one thing that the obama campaign has not talked about, even though members of fox news team have tried to get him on the record, mr. president, what did you know about what happened in benghazi, libya on september the 11th, 2012? people aren't asking that. we're asking. we're not getting any answers. but today we have got another smoking gun because the white house before had said, you know, we didn't really have any real warnings of trouble there another smoking gun. more warnings. >> gretchen: apparently they even talked to suspending operations completely at the consulate. you know there were two locations in benghazi. hut consulate and then you had the cia operation house which people, i guess, didn't know was a cia operation house which is about a mile away. and they were talking and in the day
with the city. fema is well represented and we have several defense coordinating officers here over the past couple of days. certainly the california national guard is represented heavily here. obviously they are going to be the first guys to respond to a disaster and they have several interesting roles not only from a state perspective but as they get federalized or with the dual status commander managing federal response and federal authorities of military authorities flowing in. and most significantly, we're represented today with the commander of northern command, general jackoby. as you know, defense report to civil authorities is not a primary mission area for the department of defense. we have codified it in policy over the years and certainly things have advanced since 9/11 and hurricane katrina, but there has been a real gap in detailed preplanning for emergency response, particularly as it works its way down the chain into the tactical forces that would respond, most specifically i think those on active duty. this is an area that we don't tend to pay a lot of attention to and ver

in the process and have been working with fema to make an overall assessment. you are right with those initial numbers. up to 25% of the cell phone towers have been disabled. what the fcc does and continues to do is to work with these entities to assess the situation on the ground and to use this information to see what we can do better going forward. we have not talked about payphones in a long time. that just reinforces that in terms of communication engagement, it is then all of the above approach. very few things are too legacy to use and very few things are not vulnerable. we are engaged to be sure that whatever the best lessons and best practices are going forward, in terms of redundancy in the light, but we will do better next time. >> is this an improvement over the last natural disaster we suffered, looking back to 2005 and katrina and some other hurricanes? >> it is too early to make that assessment even now. it is never satisfactory for those out of service. we are going to have vulnerabilities. when you have power, when you have and the structure, they are going to be vulnerable to
